Summer at Tiffany
By

Rating
New York City, 1945. Marjorie Jacobson and her best friend, Marty Garrett, arrive fresh from the Kappa house at the University of Iowa hoping to find summer positions as shopgirls. Turned away from the top department stores, they miraculously find jobs as pages at Tiffany & Co., becoming the first women to ever work on the sales floor, a diamond-filled day job replete with Tiffany-blue shirtwaist dresses from Bonwit Teller's and the envy of all their friends.Looking back on that magical time in her life, Marjorie takes us back to when she and Marty rubbed elbows with the rich and famous, pinched pennies to eat at the Automat, experienced nightlife at La Martinique, and danced away their weekends with dashing midshipmen. Between being dazzled by Judy Garland's honeymoon visit to Tiffany, celebrating VJ Day in Times Square, and mingling with Cafe society, she fell in love, learned unforgettable lessons, made important decisions that would change her future, and created the remarkable memories she now shares with all of us.

Reviews

"This warm account of more innocent times makes an unspoken comparison with the way we live now. A fond backwardglance."--Kirkus Reviews "Charming and fun...reminiscent of The Best of Everything and Breakfast at Tiffany's."--BookPage "What do you imagine might be the most memorable summer of your life? Do you think it's happened yet?--San Diego City Beat "A charming story of a charmed summer...I didn't want Marjorie Hart's effervescent memoir to end."--Emily Giffin, author of Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and Baby Proof "The (Tiffany) company should put this book on prominent display, for heaven's sake--it's that much of a paean."--Buffalo News "Hart's infectious vivacity resonates with a madcap immediacy, delectably capturing the city's heady vibrancy and a young girl's guileless enchantment."--Booklist "Hart writes about that stylish summer with verve, recollecting with a touching purity a magical summer in Manhattan."--Cleveland Plain Dealer "This book offers insights into the women who lived through World War II. It's a perfect Mother's Day gift."--USA Today
